Here are some of the daily doings of Plum and her owner.
Plum, you look so happy! Love seeing you have fun!
Thank you Vicki. Fun is one of my favourite pastimes.
Ooh, that looks like the perfect cavorting rug! I love the rug Andrea recently put down in the living room but I get a row when I writhe ecstatically on it - apparently it actually belongs to someone called Laura Ashley? I don't quite understand why its on our floor in that case. PS Andrea says she would like your picture made into wallpaper (she often talks of decorating but luckily for me usually finds better things to do such as taking me on trips!). Lots of love, Boy.
Life is hard for us. We are supposed to know so much. I do know a lot of things but they don't always seem to be the right things. Love Plum
Dear Plum, Especially good after a bath, I expect. I'm lucky to have on the floor of my hall a huge carpet-sized towel to finish off anything the real towel left behind. Now, about the name of the new studio. There is only one possible name for such a palatial residence: Plum Hall. Might I also suggest a coat of arms on the door, showing a squeaky pig, a river, and a plum (the traditional emblem of Plums everywhere). That should put the imbecile cat in its place. Does it have a coat of arms on its door? No sir I very much doubt it does, and faced by that it will hopefully skulk away in shame. love, Katie
I think we'd better be careful what we say about cats, Katie. I was only thinking how interesting and intelligent they are - just today, funnily enough. I am looking into the coat of arms but it sounds a bit peculiar. Love Plum
Dear Plum,3 Things;1. Katie is right in that your new studio should be named Plum Hall, complete with coat of arms. 2. Malarky and shenanigans are two of the finer things in life, usually only indulged in by children and animals. (Pity)3. This is directed at you James.... Cats Don't SKULK!! We are far far too graceful and dignified for that sort of behaviour, and if the cat next door is acting like and imbecile it is really a cunning ruse to lull Plum into a false sense of superiority before it steals her ginger pig. Just sayin'Love, Gracie
Dear Gracie, Yes well. Hmm. I don't usually talk to cats, but you may have a point. The problem is I don't have much first hand experience of cats at all. I just shriek at them through the window, and if I do get a chance to chase one I always make sure it gets away. (The claws, you know.) By contrast my cousin Poppy lives with two. And dignified is the only word for the way they deal with her. She constantly kisses them all over their faces. They sit there with their eyes shut waiting for it to stop, and when it does they just glare at her and then carry on as if nothing had happened. Anyway here's to a new and harmonious future, and thank you for joining my campaign for Plum Hall. Let's do lunch some time. Best wishes, Katie
Dear Gracie, I have given up thinking about cats because they are so clever. Now I am concentrating on foxes. Love Plum
Dear Katie, could I remind you that this is MY blog. Best wishes, Plum
this is so hilarious :)
Thank you! x
